Boys… Bales… Bows…

We’re pretty simple people.  It doesn’t take much to entertain us.  Take 3 boys (not counting Kaden and Bosley), 3 home-made bows, and lots of bales of hay, and we have ourselves a pretty good time.

And while they’re waiting for the walk, they simply entertain themselves by making faces.   July-18,-2010-099Cooperx3 July-18,-2010-107July-18,-2010-114

The shooting is even more fun when you pretend that a stack 3 hay-bales high is an elephant… 2-high is a lion…

So we relax in the grass (in front of the old cabin in which Matt and I used to live) while Bosley swims, Cooper picks at the grass and Gage runs 5 laps, (in rubber boots without stopping) around the pond.  After which, he should have joined Bosley in the water.

I smiled at this entry several times today, but never took the time to post a comment. Oh, my goodness, what a silly little fella, little Tupu is! Gager is getting to be such a big boy. And little Kadie-Kade, what fun he'll have with his big brothers in a couple years. It's wonderful that they have each other... AND you and Matt for parents.

Can I just tell you how much I love the faces of your little men! They are priceless! The expressions you are able to capture are so perfect and tell such a great story of their personalities. I so wish we lived closer so our kiddos could play together. I love that your blog Lace so I can see your wonderful life! I miss you Lace!
